Project Concern International (PCI) developed the resource guide as a toolkit to help practitioners enhance the potential for sustainability of their programs’ impact through the use of practical guidance and tools that can be readily applied throughout the project life cycle. It helps orient project teams to promising practices, common pitfalls, flexible guidance, and adaptable tools so they can tailor the most effective sustainability strategy for their program context to ensure real and lasting change. The guide does not prescribe a specific methodology or approach, but rather attempts to compile and present existing concepts and tools in such a way that practitioners can more effectively ensure real and lasting change.

The guide was developed through a unique year-long process of regional workshops held (Americas: Guatemala City, Guatemala, May 26–28; Asia: Delhi, India, June 23–25; and Africa: Blantyre, Malawi, September 8–10) and multisectoral practitioner engagement in 2014 culminating with a launch event in Washington, DC (October 14). The workshops provided an opportunity for local nongovernmental organizations (NGOs), international NGOs, government organizations, donors, and others to come together, learn, and share knowledge and experiences on sustainability, as well as provide critical input to the guide development process.
